8 Minutes 20 Seconds

15th May 2015, 19:00 PM to 4th June 2015, 16:00 PM

EXHIBITION: 15 May – 4 June, LATE SHOWS: 15 / 16 May

The Holy Biscuit gallery is partnering with Northumbria University’s Think Physics project, for an exhibition and events to coincide with the Late Shows. This show will be an artistic interpretation of the science behind the sun, marking 2015 as the UN International Year of Light. It takes 8 minutes 20 seconds for Light from the sun to reach the earth. Forming the basis for life on our planet, this enormous effect has been recognized since prehistoric times. Through artistic interpretation and scientific exploration, the show will look at how the sun creates light and how we interact with it.

Featuring work from artists Helen Schell, John Jo Murray, Sarah Davis and Emily Simpson, the show will be interspersed with fun scientific exhibits from the Think Physics team. This will be an interactive exhibition bringing both science and the arts to new audiences, as it comes alive at night with engaging activities that bring sunlight to The Late Shows on 15th & 16th May. For more information on the exhibition and featured artists visit our blog.
